Horus Heresy Review: Legio Custodes Coronus Grav-Carrier

I personally have always liked the grab-craft since they were first depicted in Rogue Trader. The Coronus carries on this tradition by having the grav-craft be in use by the Legio Custodes. It further indicates that the craft was an upgrade to the Jocasta design employed in the Unification Wars. Of course, the other grav craft are based on the Coronus design and have improved it whilst maintaining the goal of being fast an able to deploy in to zones that other vehicles might find tough.

With a capacity of 12 models and a small selection of special rules such as a flare shield, the Coronus makes for a desirable transport craft for the Legio Custodes.

The weaponry features twin linked lastrums, as well as a turret mounted blaze cannon which is nothing to be sneezed at.

In addition, the "grav backwash" rule is very entertaining as it supplied a -2 to hit unless the vehicle is immobilised.

There are no real weaknesses here: this is a well balanced transport -- nay tank -- that is worth its points value.

Even naked, the transport is viable. However, of all the upgrades available, I think this combination is probably what many people may opt for:

Coronus, armoured ceramite (155 points).
Of course, the armoured ceramite is completely optional. But it does come in handy every once in a while.
